These three music performances break down barriers between cultures, genres, and disciplines. They feature artists from Japan, South Korea, China, and Arnhem Land with Australia’s leading contemporary music ensemble, the Australian Art Orchestra.
The Australian Art Orchestra, under the direction of composer/trumpeter Peter Knight, imagines a future where new music that engages Asian, Indigenous and western influences is part of the cultural fabric of our region.
Meeting Points brings together vast Asian and Australian musical styles into an afternoon-long world premiere music event exclusive to OzAsia Festival.
Curated by Peter Knight
Featuring new music by Mindy Meng Wang (China), Bae Il Dong (South Korea), Keiichiro Shibuya (Japan), Daniel Wilfred (Arnhem Land)
